Deacon Terry Wagner shares his personal journey of loving the Eucharist in a deeper way.
- Many of us have spent years learning about the Eucharist, but so often what we know in our head doesn’t translate to our heart. Pray the following prayer to deepen your heartfelt affection for the Eucharist: Lord Jesus Christ, I feel as though I have come to know many things about you, and yet I struggle to feel connected and close to you. My desire is that you reveal to me who you truly are, and what you are truly about, especially in the gift of the Eucharist. I understand the gift of your body and blood is a mystery, but I also understand and trust that your grace will aid my eagerness to know you deeply. Please Lord, hear my prayer.
- The Eucharist is the fulfillment of many promises of God, just one of which is to be with us always until the end of the age. How do you see the Eucharist as God’s promise to always be with you.
- The connection between Christ crucified and the consecration during Mass is very real. Take some time to pray with the image below.
